First, the photo. I love this photo. This is my DD on the swings at a local field days. She loves the swings and is such a nut when it comes to rides. The paper is gorgeous. It is called Butterfly Garden by Harlee Quinz. I did a wet paper distressing to the green paper in the center and then inked it. I decided that the green and purple, while gorgeous, are very saturated colors and I needed a bright "neutral" to even it out a bit. I used this cream/white paper that has a lovely embossed texture and used one of my new favorite punches by Martha Stewart. I decided to distress the loops and tear some of them off. I am most happy with my flowers. I made these Spider Mums from an svg file and cut them out with my cricut. I cut them out on white paper and used purple distress ink to give them some color and definition. Once I got it all together I decided to dip the very center pieces in white and lilac glitter. They are really pretty in person. Here are some close ups. TFL!
